Brief Answer:
Please upload an image.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone carefully through your query and understand your concerns. Unfortunately I could not find an image attached. The rash could be due to a fungal infection or an allergic reaction. I would request you to upload image of the affected areas. It will help me to evaluate the condition. Taking some antiallergic like cetirizine or benadryl (or possibly better ones like fexofenadine or loratidine which are prescription medicines) should help. You could also apply some emollient like calamine lotion or some moisturizer like aloe vera lotion. After looking at the image I would be able to suggest if application of Candid cream would be the right thing to do.

I would await your response based on which I will guide you further. Let me know if I could help further.
